No snow yet but we have Grammy's Holiday Spritz Cookies!

2/3    cup sugar
3        egg yolks
1        tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups white flour

Mix butter, sugar, egg yolks and vanilla thoroughly.  Work flour into butter mixture one-fourth at a time.
Place dough in cookie press if not too soft for desired shapes. You can place dough in refrig, just enough
to hold shape of cookies. Press onto ungreased room temperature baking sheet. Makes about 6 doz. cookies. 

convection oven about 350 degrees (depending on oven), 6 to 8 mins, set but not brown.

New Studio . . . New Work . . .






After some much needed meditation and studio time to create . . . the first works are beginning to make their way out.  The new studio is awesome and is finally fully operational . . . For all the requests - Mugs, tea bowls and cups are on the list for this upcoming week . . . In the meantime,  My Etsy shop is finally beginning to see some new work listed and locally you can find my pottery at Good Earth on Rt. 539 in Cream Ridge, NJ. Thanks so much for all of your support and patience! xo ericka
